Sanitarium grows in plant-based space

Following the recently released National Health Survey from the ABS finding that 65.8% of Australians are considered overweight or obese under the BMI standards, many food manufacturers are looking to address this by producing healthy alternatives. Health food company Sanitarium has launched a range of plant milks with soy and protein rich ingredients.

Made at the company’s NSW Central Coast facility, the PLANTWELL range includes a high-protein soy milk with plant ingredients, such as seaweed calcium and prebiotic fibres; an oat milk with plant sterols; and an almond milk with beta glucans.

The company said the range is vegan and free from dairy, lactose, preservatives, artificial colours and flavours, in addition to being low in sugar and saturated fat and high in fibre.

The milks can be used in any way consumers would use regular dairy or plant milks, including in hot and cold beverages.

Sanitarium Brand Manager and dietitian Anja Laudrin said: “We’ve worked for more than four years researching superfood and superplant ingredients and balancing tastes and textures to create a delicious range of versatile plant milks with science-backed health benefits. Grown by nature. Proven by science.”
